An air-hostess kills self because her husband is a divorcee
An air-hostess, Anissia Batra, has killed herself after she found out that her loving husband, Mayank Singhvi has been married before their conjugal knot was tied.
It was learnt that Batra who worked with a German airline was reportedly full of rage after she found out last month that her husband was a divorcee.
According to police, “He had not told her about his first marriage. After she found out about his earlier relationship, she was quite hurt. It is suspected that they must have had arguments over it.”
Following her discovery, Anissia allegedly jumped from the terrace of her house on Friday. Meanwhile, her family has alleged that Mayank used to physically abuse her, and his parents would harass her for dowry.
Mayank was arrested on Monday and was produced in a court on Tuesday. He has been sent to 14-day judicial custody.
“We will apply for his custody after recording the statements of witnesses,” the officer said.
However, following the unfortunate incident, a family friend of Anissia said the police informed them about Mayank’s court hearing half-an-hour before her cremation.
The police said it was the duty of the investigating officer to inform the complainant’s family about the hearing. Anissia’s family also accused the police of not arresting Mayank’s parents, despite them also being “responsible” for her death.
“Singhvi’s family have used influence. His parents should also be arrested because they have constantly instigated fights between them,” the family friend alleged.
Senior police officer Romil Baaniya said Mayank’s parents have been exempted from joining the probe by the court till July 20 on personal grounds. They would be questioned after that, he said.
The officer said Anissia’s parents told the magistrate that she had been harassed for dowry.
